An ALPHA version of the new Iron Spring PL/I compiler for OS/2 is now
available at: http://www.iron-spring.com
This is a fairly rough alpha. It works well enough to compile itself and
its run-time library, but is missing many features not immediately required
to achieve a working compiler. The "release notes" included in the package
document some, but not all, of the current restrictions. The 1.0 release is
expected to be roughly a "Subset G" compiler. Eventually the compiler will
handle the full PL/I language plus extensions from other compilers.
Following the OS/2 version a Linux version is planned.
OS/2 programmers familiar with PL/I might be interested in experimenting
with the current version. Subsequent major versions will be announced as
they become available.
